Afternoon Hours is issued in four variations of beautiful silk-screen / handmade printed-stitched books inspired by traditional Kimono patterns.** The completion of my album Nature Always Needs Improving inspired me to continue working with chimes. As someone who has always been interested in creating music that has droning, suspended tones as part of its syntax, I find utilizing acoustic instruments that generate such sounds to be increasingly appealing. I began to record these chimes to cassette in a very simple manner, using the built-in mic that was part of an old tape recorder I borrowed from work. After recording some different improvisations and motifs and listening to them, I immediately enjoyed the imperfections the tape emphasized in the music—how these resonant notes grew wooly and slightly distorted in their documentation.
